Built by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 World Fair, held to commemorate the centennial of the Revolution, the Eiffel Tower (Tour Eiffel) was the world's tallest structure at 1,050 feet (320 m) until Manhattan's Chrysler Building was completed.

Initially opposed by Paris' artistic and literary elite, the Eiffel Tower was almost torn down in 1909. The tower's salvation came when it proved an ideal platform for the antennas needed for the new science of radiotelegraphy.

Today, the highlight of a visit are the views over Paris. When you're done peering upward through the girders, three levels are open to the public.

Just southeast of the Eiffel Tower is a grassy expanse that was once the site of the world's first balloon flights and is now used by teens as a skateboarding arena and by activists stating their views on the current state of France.

Practical Info

Take metro lines 6 or 9 to stop Bir Hakeim or Trocadero or RER line C to station Champ de Mars. There are elevators to the top of the Eiffel Tower - prices vary depending on how high you go - but they have long queues. Guided visits are also available.
